  • Written by News Feature Team


When it comes to building your own website, you’ll find a lot of options to make your pick from. But then again, with so many options at play, narrowing down to a single solution can be daunting and incredibly challenging.


Well, guess what? This is exactly where WordPress comes to play. If you’re someone who is just starting out with their first website, WordPress is one platform that’ll never disappoint you. This is a nifty little tool that’ll help you get started with building your very own website. In case you’re still unsure about how this works or whether at all, it’ll work in the first place, here’s everything you need to know about it.


  1. Accessible Open Source Platform

Among its plethora of benefits, one of the reasons why Wordpress truly stands out is simply because of its huge accessibility. This open source content management system offers thousands of benefits to both developers and users. In addition to this, being free of cost, it lets you save money while also giving you the option of enjoying the best features from a fully functional platform.


This platform is simple and extremely easy to download and you can always use it on your own servers. The best part, however, is the fact that you can always revise the code for modifying and tweaking its functionality. Several thousands of developers across the globe modify this CMS and provide various modules and bug fixes which make Wordpress one of the most advanced and usable platforms for building your website.


This global community of users, developers and supports constantly update the platform with newer security fixes, stronger functionality and better stability. WordPress has become the first chioce for many professional web design agencies and web developers across the world. This speaks volumes about the platform’s usefulness and robustness in the industry.


  1. Helps you create responsive websites

Another amazing benefit of Wordpress is its responsive interface. Yes! This site already comes optimised with mobile devices, thereby letting your potential audience view your website from any device of their choice.


Most of the WordPress themes perfectly sync with the mobile interface. You won’t need to additionally customise it or invest in thousands of dollars to build a responsive website that works with your mobile browser. The responsive theme will specifically ensure that your website looks awesome irrespective of the screen size it is being viewed on. In other words, your site will be completely immune to the new website norms and new screen sizes. Your job will be completed once you roll out the website.


  1. Ease of use

You don’t really need to be pro technician to figure out how exactly to work with Wordpress. This platform already comes with an intuitive, user friendly interface which is easily understandable among the masses. Updating your content on this CMS is as simple as modifying an existing Word Document. The backend admin interface too is visually simple and easy to navigate. In addition to this, the platform comes with a comprehensive content management suite that lets you power your preferred content without any additional hurdles.


  1. Simple, flexible configuration

As we already mentioned, WordPress is consistently updated by its global community of developers. Anyone under the sun can tweak the source and customise Wordpress to make it what they want it to be.


The configuration is flexible and the CMS also comes with additional add-ons and plug-ins that are installed in the dashboard for providing additional features. The flexibility of this interface helps you in building any type of website, from social media, blogs, forums or even ecommerce portals. Wordpress truly stands out because it is willing to become what you want it to be.


  1. SEO optimised

All of us want our website to be SEO optimised. After all, search engine optimisation enhances our online visibility and plays a vital role in building solid traffic. Almost every budding content marketer knows that Google and every other search engine show and rank the websites in search results according to various pre-defined parameters.


The greater numbers of parameters you fulfill, the better will your website rank in the search results. Well, this is yet another department, where Wordpress excels as the CMS already comes optimised with the leading search engines. In addition to this, it also has a host of SEO plugins that further assist in improving the search engine visibility of your Wordpress website.


Wordpress is thus, one of the best platforms that offer limitless possibilities. So whether you’re running a blog or a full-fledged business, nothing can be simpler and easy to operate than this.
